Exploring Ethics: Smart Drugs: How smart are they?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

About Wouldn't it be great if we could take a pill to learn faster, remember better, or think more clearly? Scientists have already developed drugs that can help people with cognitive deficits, so it isn't a great leap to imagine those same pills being used to help someone to be "better than normal."? In fact, one recent survey found that approximately 1 of 4 college students had used some at least one of these prescription medications to improve their studying. The future is here. Or is it? What does it mean to be smart or smarter? Do these drugs work? Are they safe? The panelists will be: George Koob, The Scripps Research Institute, Joan McRobbie, San Diego Unified School District, Veronica Galvan, University of San Diego, Mark Trotter, Minister, First United Methodist Church, retired. The program and parking are free but please RSVP by March 30
